For brushless motor it just moves the power band around, the more timing the higher in the RPM range the peak torque will be.

For Brushed more timing gives more RPM and torque, but decreases efficiency and increases drag brake. The typical range is 0-20 degrees.

If you are looking at the endbell, counterclockwise advances the timing and clockwise retards the timing.

lots of timing can wear out brushes faster too. I, along with all the people I race with run from 10-15 degrees of timing.
